Have you ever seen a knight in a suit of armour, where it protects the knight from being hurt? Having healthy self-esteem is just like that! It can be your own personal suit of armour that helps protect you against the ups and downs of life.
What is self-esteem?
Self-esteem is the way that we feel about ourselves. It's about knowing and appreciating who we are, and sharing this with other people. We are all different and unique - we have different skills and make different choices about what we want to do. Feeling ok about your skills and choices is what makes for healthy self-esteem.
